Wish I had found this over a year ago when my host scrapped FTP, brilliant plugin. Works great.

If FTP is disabled and you've to use SFTP
By , for WP 3.6.1

After I realized that the only options there are FTP and FTPS when WordPress asked me to enter login credentials, just with a single google search I came across this wonderful plugin. You can get it with wget and unzip in the plugins directory, activate and voila.

Worked for me...

SFTP is the only non-anonymous-user option on my WP server, this plugin solved the problem of getting/installing WP updates using SFTP.

Thanks!

We don't have FTP on our server and needed this extension. It works great!

Indispensable
By , for WP 3.5.1

I´m using a VPS with about 10 WordPress installs. For security reasons I´ve completely disabled FTP. With this plugin I´m still able to use WordPress auto update features. I also did a quick write up on how I install WP via SSH and as a last step I suggested installing this plugin. Many thanks to the author.

Much easier than installing the pecl ssh extension
By , for WP 3.5.1

I tried installing the PECL SSH extension on my server, but hit a load of dependency problems so I gave up and tried this instead. It worked first time and I had installed another plugin via SSH from within the WordPress admin within minutes.

Really really great!! Perfekt for SFTP/SSH!
By , for WP 3.5.1

Thanks for this powerful plugin, it works like a charm. Nothing to setup, it just works. SFTP/SSH is the only way I can login on one of my sites, and before now I could'nt update everything automatically and some plugins therefore didn't work properly (if they make use of the update functionality).

Easy to install.
Adds an option ssh to the settings location where wordpress asks for ftp connection data.
